Families who are divorcing do not buy! They liquidate!

Each of us has seen the changes in attitude of friends family or co-workers when love dies. Hope becomes despair, the glass is always half empty instead of half full with anger and thoughts of getting even dominate their conversation. The occasional mention of the partners imperfections, which used to be told with humour, are now a litany of hateful transgressions which seem so morally reprehensible one wonders how they were lived within the past. This negative vitriol pervades not only the waking moments, but reduces sleep time as well, so these employees are not only angry and in a negative place, they are sleepless and not able to be productive at work.

Families who are divorcing do not buy! They liquidate!

Just when you think you have your employee back and the flareups have ended, the rebound romance starts and these mature individuals, on whom you depend, start acting emotionally like teenagers again.   If one plus one always equals two, then here are some truths which always add up as well.

All humans are wired emotionally and mentally to desire one partner to share their life with. This family is the core of our society and shapes the majority of our decisions. When the relationship is great we increase our productivity because it is our desire to provide more to the family. When the relationship becomes mediocre and withers other thoughts and negative emotions intrude and our productivity diminishes. It is therefore in the best interests of business to promote healthy, loving, family relationships in their workforce so not only are they increasing the productivity of their employees, they are growing their potential customer base to buy their product.

Loving on purpose is not only great for relationships, it is imperative in business. Here is a simple test.  Change your thinking of emotional expression towards your partner.  Love them on purpose and you might just be surprised with the feeling of joy and hope you experience. I promise you, this action will translate and be reflected in your work, increasing your creativity and productivity.
